@kismetcosmetics latest leaves you with lovely lashes

Locally-owned, Covington-based Kismet Cosmetics continues to expand -- branching out into the eyelash serum game! I have stubby eyelashes, so when I heard about the Wink Eyelash Serum -- I had to try it!

The serum combines peptides and botanicals! Full results should appear in 90 days, but you should start seeing a change after 3 weeks! It's easy to apply, I just used the applicator on my top lashes (when you blink, it'll get on the lower lashes). 

Our blend of botanicals like, Rose Flower Water and White Tea, condition and nourish lashes to keep them healthy. Clinically tested, Hypoallergenic and Non-Irritating formula is safe, gentle and effective.

So does it work??? Here's my AFTER PHOTO: 

Just kidding! Here's a BEFORE & AFTER photo after just a few weeks of usage: 


I am sorry. I am not a professional photographer and this isn't the greatest image -- but I can definitely see improvement. It's probably millimeters -- but I will take it!

The serum is basically a conditioner for your lashes. It's a way to tend to them and keep them healthy -- allowing for growth!

If you don't have the money for extensions or prescription-strength serums, this is a great option. I am going to have to see how it plays out after 90 days, but Kismet's eyelash serum is 60 bucks (compare that to some of the other products on the market that run double that or more). If your eyelash length bothers you, Kismet's serum nurtures them, you'll be ecstatic about the improvement! 


Swedish House Mafia, Tiesto, David Guetta, Kaskade — #ULTRA20 does not disappoint

Fireworks, pyrotechnics, lasers, giant jumbotrons, massive deafening speakers: #ULTRA20 did not fall short — with an epic lineup and unforgettable performances.

As an #ULTRA noob, I had no idea what to expect. I had seen pictures and videos, but none of that will ever truly encapsulate the exceptional essence of the Ultra Music Festival on BayFront Park in Miami. I dived head first into the virtual insanity and loved every second of it!

Day 1, I explored — and I was a kid in a candy store. I didn’t know where to start, I didn’t know where to go next. The Main Stage looked like a time travel portal from another dimension, I felt like I was going light speed in Star Wars!

The ASOT Mega Structure was also out of this world, like a space ship, with moving mechanical structures.

The Worldwide Stage was like nothing I have ever seen — a half pipe or something from Sonic the Hedgehog! And the way it illuminated! I have never seen anything like that stage, it was so cool to be under there.

But the stages became an afterthought — because in the end — it’s all about the music. The line up was absurd. You knew this was going to be a monumental festival.

There were just too many great artists. I was so divided!

Day 1

Armin Van Buuren has been one of my favorite DJs since I was a teenager, so I was just amped to see him on such a huge stage (Check out the vids above!) 

Empire of the Sun had some sound issues off the top, but you know how they do. Nothing was going to stop them from putting on a performance. Jumping in the crowd, crashing guitars, incredible costumes with extremely strange, yet awesome, dance routines. It was a fun show!

Flosstradamus was easily my favorite. Just so much energy with that crowd. It was electric. Kids head banging and dancing their tails off — completely amped. The Worldwide stage was the perfect setting, this was one of my favorites from the weekend.

Day 2

I was on a mission to see Tiesto. He’s my favorite DJ. I was going to be in the front. Not in the press area. I wanted to be in the mix of it! The only way I thought that was possible — go early to the Main Stage and just wait it out! I thought I was prepared. I was not!

Alan Walker was an absolute treat. His hit “Faded” never gets old to me, so just hearing that alone, made the hour set worth it to me.


Also, Steve Aoki made an appearance during Walker's set! He was a ton of fun, getting everyone excited (AND...Aoki retweeted me :D)

Jauz isn’t really my style — talented dude, no doubt. But his music is intense. And my goodness, I had no idea how insane the #sharksquad was — moshing, fighting, shoving, pushing. I WOULD NOT BE MOVED. My body really paid for it, but I was excited I made it through his set without passing out or breaking anything, LOL!


Enough said. It was everything I wanted and more. He played it all — new, old. I literally cried when I heard the first notes of “Adagio for Strings”… I CRIED. He’s just classic. He was one of the ones who got me into the electronic scene and seeing him on this scale, it just gave me all the feels. Battling through the #sharksquad was 100% worth it.

OH yeah -- and Marshmello made an appearance during Tiesto's set!

After that I just was kind of done. But bounced around to Jamie Jones, Cedric Gervais, and TCHAMI X MALAA — they were also amazing! Day 2 was probably my favorite. Had such a ridiculous time on the Main Stage.

Day 3

I needed my trance in my life! So I spent the early part of the day at the ASOT Megastructure. Andrew Rayel, Paul Oakenfold, Vini Vici & Armin Van Buren took me back in time, playing so many old trance hits. I did have tears a few times…. lol… promise I am not a crybaby. Just was so moving to see such legends up there, playing the music from my youth.

I closed out my #ULTRA weekend on the Main Stage. Kaskade & David Guetta were just killing it. The crowds for them were massive. Just so huge, people as far as the eye could see. I actually was so impressed by Guetta. He just seemed so happy up there, he was enjoying himself so much. You could just feel his joy and ecstasy. He told us he was one of his best crowds ever — he literally left his heart on that stage.

The mystery final set — Swedish House Mafia. They elevated the stage at least 50 feet. They had a mirror above the group, so you could see what they were doing from this insane perspective. There was an incredibly emotional video put up on the jumbotrons showing the group from their younger years having fun -- evolving into adults. 

I mean look at this stage tho.... C'mon! 

What else can I say? It was a once in a lifetime opportunity. I remember being a teen, listening to electronic stations and they'd always talk about this ULTRA Music Fest.

It was like a mystical land, a paradise that I thought I'd never know. Just a fairy tale I dreamt about.

I just kept putting it off -- and then the next thing you know -- the 20th anniversary fest comes up before you know it, and you just know it's now or never. 

So many incredible performances, but for me seeing the legends Tiesto, Armin Van Buuren, Kaskade, David Guetta, Swedish House Mafia, Paul Oakenfold -- it was life-changing.

The DJs I listened to and cherished as a teen and in my early 20s! I remember staring at the ceiling, lying in bed, while their music took me to another world -- and here they were -- right in front of me. It was truly magical. 

If you're an electronic fan, I just have one question for you -- what are you waiting for? Go. You will not regret a second of it. 

DESIGNER Eyebobs sunglasses!

Be bold. Be different. Just be YOU.

Eyebobs are easily my favorite glasses company. They are exceptional. They are unique. They are wild.

The company started selling prescription glasses  recently -- and now they've unveiled a designer sunglasses line...

Yup, I know.

that was my reaction too.

Shock. Amazement. Joy.

Just like their impeccable prescription & reading glasses, the Eyebobs sunglasses frames are like no other! Eyebobs founder Julie Allinson has spoken about the transformative power of an "irreverent and slightly jaded" pair of Eyebobs glasses. Their designer sunglasses will not disappoint!!!

#sunnies #sunglasses #saturday @eyebobs

When I wore these Quarter Zip Polarized sunglasses to brunch with a big group of guys and girls -- both sexes were complimenting my frames. Seriously, I have never received so many compliments on frames in my life! They all tried the sunglasses on -- and every single one of them gave the frames rave reviews. They all wanted a pair!

They thought the frames had a classy, yet sporty look. The pattern and colors (Green and Brown Tortoise Front and Temples with Brown Polarized Lenses) were one-of-a-kind. None of them could believe how clear they were (I honestly would consider playing volleyball in these because they're not too dark and you can see so darn well in them)! They're also incredibly lightweight and comfortable. 

They cost $150 but are 100% worth it. The whole group said my Eyebobs sunnies were up there with the best of the best. Rayban, Oakley, Maui Jim -- you name it and put it up against Eyebobs! You will not be disappointed. 

Eyebobs latest business venture (tackling the designer sunglasses industry) could bode quite well for them. Again, they're amazing quality, fun and stylish! I can't wait to see what they come out with next! 





You’ve got that spark. That little something extra. Go ahead – let it out with eyewear.

The biggest and the best DJs are coming out of the woodwork to be a part of this epic fest. Seriously, I read it and almost passed out.

The DJ Headliner list includes the most epic electronic DJs on this Earth. There’s the legends I grew up with (Tiesto, Armin Van Burren, Kaskade, Eric Prydz). The big household names now (The Chainsmokers, Steve Aoki, DJ Snake, Afrojack — to name a few). Let’s not forget the best of bass, Flosstradamus and RL Grime. Plus, Marshmello and Virtual Self are making their debut appearance on the ULTRA MAINSTAGE!

Ultra Music Festival is THIS MONTH!!

A post shared by Ultra Music Festival (@ultra) on

ULTRA’s LIVESTAGE also off the chain — including my personal favorites Empire of the Sun, Azealia Banks, Tchami X Malaa. But that stage also includes a long list of greatness. As well as, the return of Rabbit in the Moon — the group performed at the first ULTRA in 1999.

Josh Wink, who also hit the stage at the first ULTRA, is apart of the Support list. And there’s not shortage of talent here either! Alan Walker, Benny Bennasi, San Holo, Rezz, Matoma, Paul Oakenfold, NGHTMARE, SLUSHII — that list just goes on and on. 

ULTRA FEST 2018 just looks scary good. The lineup is literally daunting, there’s SO many exceptional acts.

Don’t pass up this opportunity, VIP tickets are still available. Grab a flight or road trip South to ULTRA MUSIC FEST 2018 at the Bayfront Park in Downtown Miami. It runs from Friday, March 23rd through Sunday, March 25th. There’s no way this will disappoint. I am eagerly counting down to #ULTRA20


Refreshed & Refocused after Raw Republic Juice Cleanse

I was talking to my personal trainer, Barry Smith (with Fuel Center of Fitness in Metairie) about how hard it is to lose that last 10 pounds. He had a great recommendation -- do a juice cleanse with Raw Republic (4528 Magazine Street in New Orleans).

At first I was really skeptical. I love to eat. I LOVE TO EAT. How in the heck was I going to make it through on just a bunch of juice? But honestly, I was willing to try anything. 

The juice shop is set up on the incredibly popular Magazine Street -- and it is adorable. It's straight out of something you'd see in California, clean, white -- this minimalist feel. The staff was incredibly informative and friendly. I showed up, paid -- and they gave me my first two days of my three day cleanse (you have to pick up the third day later, so the ingredients are fresh). 

You got 6 bottles. 1 for breakfast, 2 for brunch, 3 for lunch, 4 for lunner, 5 for dinner and 6 for a snack. #1 was always this delectable tonic, made with ginger, cayenne, lemon. It just made me feel purified! #2 and #3 were green drinks -- spinach or kale based with other great healthy add ins. #4 one day was a strawberry drink, the second day it was a beet drink, the third day it was a coconut almond milk mix. #5 was a delectable carrot-based juice. #6 Was a richer coconut, almond milk mix. All of them were SO GOOD and left me feeling fulfilled, but not heavy.

I was so worried about feeling full. I kept thinking , there's no way this will sustain me -- but they did! Seriously, as soon as I started feeling hungry, it was already time for my next drink. If I got super hungry I had some carrot sticks or berries. 

It does require some discipline, but when you get those three days you feel fantastic. The owner, Evan, told me that people usually do a cleanse once a month, some customers have done it for 25 days straight. Man, I would if I could -- but it is $150 for a 3 day cleanse. I'm going to look at my budget and see how many times I can work it in, but I feel great. Slim, svelte, not heavy or bloated, I am a juice cleanse believer! Stay disciplined with these delicious drinks and it will go a long way!

PinkBlush has great range ! They got fancy options for a big event, or for work. They also have casual clothing -- and these Blue Distressed Denim Front Pocket Overalls are a must-have!

#isparklewhen I wear Long Tall Sally

and remember... @longtallsallyclothing

A post shared by Jacki Jing (@jackijing) on

When it comes to clothes, it can be tough being a tall lady! I'm not 5'8" -- not 5'10" -- not 6'0" -- I am 6'2" with a 37.5 inch inseam! I am still traumatized by pants shopping in my teens. I vividly remember looking in the mirror in high school, wanting to cry, when the "cool" jeans came up above my ankle.

I'm 30 now and I've figured out how to work around the fashion difficulties when it comes to #tallgirl shopping. 

I wear a lot of dresses. I've gotten used to my trousers looking like boat pants.

But it's always been disheartening, not being able to get chic, stylish clothing because my legs and arms are too long, and my feet are too big (size 11).

What about #tallgirl shops you ask? Well, when I was kid, the "Big & Tall" stores (as my father horrifically called them) had the worst selection. They were mom clothes. Not remotely fun or flashy. So for years, I just accepted the droll or wore ill-fitting outfits  ( I know... tragic). 

In 2008, Long Tall Sally started selling in North America. But I didn't hear about them until a few years later (of course, from some fellow volleyball players who share my clothing woes). I immediately thought: 'Oh boy, some more ugly mom clothes -- I am sure."

I didn't check them out for awhile, but then after another frustrating day at the dressing room, filled with ill-fitting attire and tears -- I decided to look at Long Tall Sally's website!

LTS is Tall Girl Heaven. Their clothes have style. They have traditional, classic options (which are always great, don't discount fashion basics and fundamentals like a good pair of work slacks and a little black dress).

They also have on-trend pieces with pizazz (absolutely loved my latest outfit, below, long pink winter jacket, merlot-colored crushed velvet dress with rose gold velvet ankle boots -- I mean, c'mon -- LOVE!!!!!) 

“We don’t just sell clothes for tall women. We champion tall women.
Everything we do is dedicated to making tall women look - and feel - fabulous.”

— Long Tall Sally

Every time I get a LTS package, I am elated! On Cloud 9! It's a tall lady's fashion dream. You truly do not understand the excitement you feel when you're a tall woman, and you slip on a jacket and it's not inches above your wrist! The shock you feel when the end of your pants actually touches the ground. The joy that overwhelms you when you slip on those adorable shoes and your toes aren't all mashed up in the front. 

Long Tall Sally provides me an overabundance of happiness!!! My recent outfits were off the chain!!!

As long as you love me so 💙 Let it ❄️ Let it 🌨 Let it ❄️ @longtallsallyclothing

Karl Lagersfield Paris Textured Faux Leather Jacket 

I just felt like a rock star in this jacket. I am pretty slim, but my jackets are never form-fitting. But this jacket just slides on to you and accentuates all the right areas. Felt like a total bad B in this.

Longline Lace Shirt

This piece is the perfect combination of classy and sassy. You can wear it to work with a black tank top underneath or be a little more provocative and wear a black bra or crop top. Both looks were fabulous. I wore it professionally on-air with the tank and then went out in it it as well!

Metallic Slim Leg Jean

These are high-waisted, following the latest trend. I wore it with that longer lace shirt, but man it looks great with shirts tucked in to it or a fun, airy crop top. The color of these are just chic. You need this in your closet. 

LTS Neema Stretch Back Leather Boot

I mean. These boots though....... The knee high look is so in. These boots are traditional and trendy.  I rock them constantly and get so many compliments.

Curatd. X LTS Single Button Maxi Coat

This jacket is just too much fun. Long and pink. I just feel fabulous whenever I wear it. It's lighter weight wool, so perfect for fall or a cool day in winter. Another piece that can come come off casual or classy, depending on what you pair with it!

LTS Laura Velvet Ankle Boot

These shoes are insane. Just gorgeous. Fit great, material is nice. Easily my favorite shoes I own. You will turn heads in these. Period. 

Velvet Back Tie Bodycon Dress

I don't need to tell you this. Velvet is so in right now. Great for a sexy winter date night or if you want to wow the family during the holidays. Comfy and fits great. 

We NEVER just add inches. We construct each and every garment
positioning hips, hems, pockets and plackets exactly where they should be.
— Long Tall Sally

all i want... @longtallsallyclothing Curatd. X LTS Lace Bodice Jumpsuit

A post shared by Jacki Jing (@jackijing) on

Curatd. X LTS Lace Bodice Jumpsuit 

Do not freak out when you see this. Just buy it. I know it's a long sleeve, wide-leg jump suit and just seems like a risky buy. Girl -- just get it!
This is my favorite outfit from LTS & that's saying so much, because I love all the outfits I got!

This jumpsuit just flatters every part of you. The airiness of it makes you look whimsical and willowy -- and it just feels so good to have the arms and legs of it fit you to a T! 

At first, I was like "OMG -- but how many wears will I get out of this?" When you see how well this looks on, you'll be like I don't care if it's a flashier piece, I am going to wear this as much as I can. 

Instead of wearing a dress to a wedding, wear this.

Baby shower, wear this.

Date... put this on.

Concert, this is your choice... You will love this jumpsuit -- best part, it's SO COMFY!

Suede Biker Jacket

This jacket is just the coolest. Again, fits like a glove and the suede is so soft and beautiful. It's edgy, but not over the top at all. This is a jacket you have to have in your closet. You just get instant cool points when sporting this incredible piece. 

Ombre Sparkle Sweater

This is fun for the holidays. Not too ostenatious and comfy. Perfect for Christmas morning or a chill NYE party. 

Faux Leather Skinny Trouser Jean

Another sick pair of pants from LTS! Fit amazing, stylish, sleek. (Faux) leather pants are all the rage -- hop on this train! 

LTS Sorley Stud Suede Ankle Boot

These boots are BEAUTIFUL. The sparkly studs, the chunky heel. I mean these have fashionista written all over them. They fit and look fantastic!

We dress the tall women of the world
— Long Tall Sally

Tall girls, rejoice! Finally, we have cute, chic, classy clothing options!!

 Thank you Long Tall Sally, for giving me confidence again.

When I am in your clothes, I can walk with my head held high. I am no longer paranoid about pants creeping up my calves or pulling my jacket sleeves down, as they wriggle up almost to my elbow. 

My clothes -- just fit. It makes me finally feel like myself. Whole. 

Y'all get me and I am so happy I found you, Long Tall Sally! You got a customer for life <3 






Oh yes, Obagi!

I recently got my Obagi kit from the Sculpting Center of New Orleans and the results are remarkable. It's an incredible skincare regimen that battles aging on various levels, from skin discoloration to wrinkles to saggy skin!

Since I work on TV, I have tried out so many beauty products, I don't even know where to start. But it's remarkable to me how much money I have spent -- and how often the products -- just don't work.

Well, you won't get that with Obagi. This anti-aging routine is powerful. Skin discoloration on my upper lip (had a little browning) disappeared. My skin just felt fresh and clear after using it! I used to get a few zits a month. Since I started using Obagi three months ago, I barely break out. It's incredible how clear my skin is!


As I said though, this stuff is potent -- so make sure you moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. The Obagi kit will accommodate. It comes with a special moisturizer (and a sunscreen if you're heading outdoors). But I threw on some extra coconut oil or Aquaphor on at night to really make sure my skin was hydrated with the Obagi concoctions! 

I am impressed with what I am seeing so far, but again,  this stuff is strong ! Use smaller amounts in the beginning and then you can up your usage if necessary. Depending on your skin type, you may want to use every other day to or a couple times a week. But prepare for a revitalization and transformation of your skin! If you're interested in an Obagi kit or their products, contact Elizabeth at Sculpting Center of New Orleans.
